An unusual 18ct gold seal with banded hard stone,(carnelian) for the stem and the base. The base is engraved with a crown and a garter which says within “God save the King”. It has the original split ring. It is a Royalist seal in support of George III (r.1760–1820), the first Hanoverian king born in England. He was affectionately nicknamed ‘Farmer George’ because of his interest in agriculture. Many of his richer rural subjects were themselves busily and profitably improving farming methods. By contrast, smallholders and customary tenants were impoverished by the enclosure of land and the commercialisation of agriculture.
